INVISALIGN® TREATABLE CASES

ORTHODONTICS & INVISALIGN

Depending on the complexity and severity of the problem or the combination of problems to be treated, Invisalign aligners can be used individually or combined with braces. Invisalign can be used for treating the following dental problems.

Here are some of the cases Invisalign Can Treat

OVERBITE

An overbite is when your upper teeth are positioned too far forward in front of the bottom teeth when you close your mouth. It can cause difficulty while chewing and biting food. In mild cases of overbite, Invisalign can be used to move teeth to align them in the correct position.

UNDERBITE

An underbite is when the bottom teeth are in front of the upper teeth and are unable to contact properly when the mouth is closed. This can cause rapid tooth wear as well as impede proper speech. Invisalign can position the lower teeth back so they are more naturally positioned behind the front teeth.  

In moderate cases of underbite, braces may be combined with Invisalign. Severe underbites can’t be treated with Invisalign.

CROSSBITE

A crossbite is the upper teeth that are inclined toward the inner side of the lower teeth rather than outside. Invisalign can be used to correct the teeth positioning and treat a crossbite.

 

GAPS IN TEETH

An excessive gap between teeth is not only aesthetically unpleasing but can cause food impaction between teeth and gums, leading to pain and gum disease. Per arch, Invisalign can reliably close up to 6mm of space. For larger gaps, Invisalign has to be combined with braces as a part of the treatment plan.

 

OPEN BITE

When upper and lower teeth don’t meet on closing the mouth, (can be due to an occlusal interference). An open bite can be fixed by an Invisalign by aligning upper and lower teeth into their respective correct positions so they can meet and close properly.

 

CROWDED OR CROOKED TEETH

Due to a lack of sufficient space to accommodate all teeth in the jaw, the teeth end up twisted and overlapping each other. This is known as crowding and can lead to gum disease due to the lack of proper access to maintain oral hygiene. 

Invisalign® For Crowded Teeth

 

For molars, Invisalign is able to rotate the teeth no more than 20 degrees. The degree of rotation can be more for canines, premolars, and incisors. For mild to moderate cases of crooked and crowded teeth, Invisalign can be a viable treatment option.

To correct alignment, teeth might have to be forward or backwards tilted. A tilt below 45 degrees is easy for Invisalign to employ.

 

After the initial consult with your orthodontist, a treatment plan is devised according to the problems that need to be fixed. If you are a candidate for Invisalign, intraoral digital scans are taken by your dentist which is then sent to fabricate customized clear aligners. These aligners are custom-made to apply pressure on specific teeth to move them into place, and are replaced after every two weeks or so.

From the start Dr. Chahal and the team took into consideration my high anxiety about coming to the dentist due to childhood traumas of past dentists treating me as just another "patient" But the entire team from Reception, Hygienist, Dental assistant and Dentist made me feel empowered to keep my Dental hygiene strong and wanting to up keep with my appointments. They see you as a person and make you feel welcome and comfortable always checking in on you while the appointment moves along. I couldn't recommend a better Dental practice and truly feel all his employees are passionate about every patient giving them the best service you could expect from what once scared me to go for cleanings. I now look forward because they have erased all fear from what others have done, they make me want to do my best with my dental hygiene and give me knowledge about the importance of what they do allowing me to be part of my dental health. Before I allowed fear to detour me from coming to the dentist, but now I am a strong believer in putting my dental hygiene in top priority as it plays a huge factor in our physical and mental health. If you have pain in your mouth it stops you from enjoying the food that nourishes our body which can lead to even more problems. So if you have had poor dental experiences in the past, fear to come in because you've put it off for so long or just want to experience what a dentist is suppose to truly be I recommend Oxford Family Dental for all ages and will continue recommending them to all my friends and family.
